Rick Owens loves strong images. From his first collection, "Monsters", presented in 1998, to his 2016 collections, "Mastodons" and "Cyclops "the American designer - and Parisian by adoption - has never ceased to offer daring, offbeat collections in his own image.
Rock, rebel, transgressive, Owens breaks the codes of traditional fashion and the catwalks that go with it, notably by choosing models who aren't models at all, like gospel singers or step teams. Her sense of provocation, particularly in her depiction of nudity and playfulness, conceals a great sensitivity and a search for an idealized but lost adolescence. His creations come in black, white or gray, with unstructured, asymmetrical drapes. The designer gives free rein to his tribal instincts, offering a brutal reinterpretation of classic pieces. The man is, above all, an artist.
The Rick Owens label now also includes the Lilies Jersey Collection and DRKSHDW lines.
